upgraded to rh7.0 from 6.2

[root@pug pete]# /etc/rc.d/init.d/linuxconf start

[root@pug pete]# linuxconf  
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

[root@pug pete]# rpm -q linuxconf
Comment 1 Sergio A. Kessler 2000-10-12 11:06:58 EDT
it happened to me too, workaround: delete /etc/conf.linuxconf
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2000-10-16 18:53:51 EDT
It seems the linuxconf exe has been movet to /sbin from /bin. In an upgrade 
the /bin/linuxconf file is not replaced. Verify this by running /sbin/linuxconf.

Deleting the config file only lets linuxconf start withour any modules. If a 
module is attempted to load the prog core dumps because you have a 1.17 exe 
trying to load a 1.19 module. 

Better workaround:

run /sbin/linuxconf .... keep your config file

I have this problem running redhat 7.1 kernel 2.4.2-2 (default)
I can load linuxconf fine even in GUI mode but when ever I touch any of the 
network settings and press accept....segmentation fault, core dump.

I am stuck for a work around.
